Florida mayor vows to fight "back yard shooting ranges"

With the publicizing of the law that allows people to shoot guns in their own yards the mayor of the town Palm beach has filed a law suit to overturn the law that allows this. Neighbors are outraged over the law but under florida law there is nothing anyone can do at this time

"You can slice and dice it anyway you want, but there's an accident waiting to happen," said Rick Ramsay, the Sheriff of Monroe County, where Varrieur's gun range is located.

I feel like this is something we should have known about when we were all neighbors. How awesome would this have been?

you would think there would be so restrictions when the bill was passed other then the ones that are there. seems like its too broad and doesn't protect others

Agreed. This is going to be an interesting procedure. There has to be some consideration for safety - backstop, angles of shooting, etc, etc.

It will be intriguing to see how the legislature handles this.

I agree with the back stop for sure BUT being allow to shoot in a residential neighborhood in your yard seems to have no regard for safety.

we have a range her in Dallas area that been there for 50 years and a residential neighborhood went in behind it and the homes are getting hit with fall out
